Summary:Across industries, firms vary broadly on how they operate with respect to their Research & Development (R & D) activities. This volume presents a holistic approach to evaluating the critical elements of R & D management, including planning, organization, portfolio management, project management, and knowledge transfer by assessing R & D management from different sectors. Featuring empirical research and in-depth case studies from industries as diverse as medical imaging, electric vehicles, and cyber security, the authors identify common features of successful R & D management, despite fundamental differences, such as company size, number of employees, industry sector, and the R & D budget. In particular, they consider the implications for decision making with respect to resource allocation and investments, such as site selection, purchasing, and cross-departmental communication.
